Our pro-ecological activities
Nova Trading Service Center owns a treatment plant for rainwater and surface water coming from its area. The clarified water is subjected to cyclic tests.
The Company invests in thermal insulation of its objects leading to energy and fuel savings. In each object a modern design solutions for gates and entrance doors have been applied to maximize the tightness and energy conservation. The Company uses modern heaters and low-emission boilers powered by natural gas to heat the production facilities. These devices are systematically serviced, and the gas consumption is regulated and optimally adjusted to the outside temperaturę.
The Company selects low CO2 emission vechicles as company cars. There are a few hybrid cars used by employees. Moreover, Nova Trading gradually replaces gas driven forklifts with electrical ones.
The Company’s owned vechicles undergo regular checks of technical condition,engine oil services and tyre changes in Authorised Service Stations. These actions affect an optimal usage of each car and, as a result, reduction of environmental pollution.
Transportation Logistics is also based on environmental assumtions. Each route is planned with maximum usage of load capacity which minimizes fuel consumption.
As concerns office work in the company, Nova Trading employees limit printing by using an electronic system for transfer of information and documents (e.g. Electronic Invoice Flow) and double-sided printing. Additionally, electronic attendence lists, e-delegations or e-surveys have been introduced to limit the use of paper. Defective electronic equipment, fluorescent lamps, used toners and batteries are handed over to recycling companies for processing. The generated waste is sorted.
In 2022, the company established its own apiary on the premises of Nova Metale. Four bee families are looked after by the Toruń Pszczelarium Foundation.
Bearing in mind the importance of bees in the ecosystem, we have also engaged in educating the public on this topic. Thanks to cooperation with the Foundation, we organized beekeeping workshops for Nova Trading employees and their families, during which all interested parties had the opportunity to learn about issues related to bees, hive care, etc.
